Hi,
I send regrets as we're participating Thursday morning in the US Data Demo Day with the Data Transparency Coalition.[1]    I'll be highlighting the importance Web standards for discovery, access and re-use of electronic data with Congressional staffers & members.  We'll be demo'ing how persistent identifiers are currently used by government to reliably deliver electronic resources that are deemed essential to our democracy, including the Federal Budget.

"More
 than 
20 
technology 
companies,
 from
 sector 
leaders 
like 
Microsoft, 
Google,
 and 
Coalition
 member

Teradata 
to 
ambitious 
start‐ups 
like 
Poplicus,
 will 
give 
live
 presentations 
demonstrating 
how
 the 
DATA
 Act

would 
allow 
their 
innovative 
data
 search, 
publication,
 and
 analysis 
tools 
to 
“open 
Big 
Government
 to 
Big

Data.”
 The 
DATA
 Act 
would
 require 
the 
federal 
government
 to
 adopt 
common 
electronic 
identifiers 
for

grantees 
and 
contractors 
receiving 
federal 
funds, 
allowing 
government‐wide 
waste 
and 
fraud 
detection 
in

federal 
assistance 
and 
procurement."

May I ask the following two agenda items be covered in Thursday's call:

1)  It would be VERY helpful if you can prepare for Thursday's meeting by reviewing the Linked Data Glossary [2] and confirm the chairs recommendation to publish under the shortname http://www.w3.org/TR/ld-glossary/ by next Tuesday 21-May.  This shortname has previously been approved by W3C management.

FYR - There is a lot of discussion happening on GitHub around Project Open Data. [3]  Ideally, we can add the Linked Data Glossary to that repository to widen the discussion which currently appears dismissive of LD and casts it as too hard and/or not adopted.


2)  Also, please make a point to go to http://dir.w3.org and create a dir.ttl file and host it on a publicly accessible Web server that you control.  A FAQ is available.[4]

Upon quick review today, there are 23 organizations currently listed and only 10 are members of the GLD WG.  We're hard pressed to promote a LD approach if less than 30% of *this* working group's organizations (total of 37 organizations represented by this WG) have put an entry in the W3C Directory.  

By adding your organization to the W3C Directory  your organization attracts better search results, as well as more exposure.  Marketing matters.   Further, it's a clean, simple demonstrator project for LD.  

If you are experiencing any difficulties creating an entry, please email me & I'll ensure your concerns are addressed immediately.

3) I'll coordinate with other editors of BP doc to update the timetable for review & delivery.  (Yes, I feel huge pressure to get this done asap.)

TIA.

Cheers,

Bernadette Hyland, co-chair 
W3C Government Linked Data Working Group
